Officials said a faulty lightbulb is the apparent cause of a $40 million marina boathouse fire in Port Lambton, Ontario, on the shores of Canada's St. Clair River.

The Ontario Office of the Fire Marshal has ruled out numerous other possibilities and concluded that an electrical problem likely sent a spark onto one of 75 boats in a large storage facility at the St. Clair Boathouse.

All 75 boats and four antique cars in the single-story building were destroyed in the Dec. 20 fire, according to a report by the Toronto Sun.
